Despite a breakout performance in the NCAA Tournament and receiving some feedback from NBA general managers that he could possibly be a first-round pick, center Marcus Lee has chosen to return to Kentucky for a sophomore season.

“I’ve really enjoyed my college experience and I’m looking forward to continuing to develop as an all-around player,” Lee said in a statement. “Playing in the Final Four was such an amazing feeling, but I want to come back and help win that final game this year.”

John Calipari added, “I’m excited for Marcus and think he’s barely scratched the surface of what he’s capable of. In addition to his athleticism and the energy level he brings, the experience he gained in the NCAA Tournament this year will be immeasurable for us next season.”
